Description

Anger was something to believe in when the world let her down. FURIOUS THING roars with justifiable anger at an unfair world, as one girl fights to claim back the spaces that belong to her and battles to be heard . . . Lexi's angry. And it's getting worse. If only she could stop losing her temper and behave herself, her step-father would accept her, her mum would love her like she used to and her step-brother would declare his crushing desire to spend the rest of his life with her. She wants these things so badly she determines to swallow her anger and make her family proud. But pushing fury down doesn't make it disappear. Instead, it simmers below the surface waiting to erupt. There'll be fireworks when it does.

Author Biography

Jenny Downham trained as an actor and worked in alternative theatre before starting to write. Her first book, BEFORE I DIE, is an international bestseller. It won the Branford Boase Award and was shortlisted for the Guardian Children's Fiction Prize. Her second novel, YOU AGAINST ME, won the Waterstones Teen Fiction Prize, and her third novel, UNBECOMING, was shortlisted for the YA Book Prize and won the Stonewall Honor Award from the American Library Association. Jenny lives in London. She hopes that this story encourages more girls to make a noise so that their voices can be heard.
